Great time to ride this road! Old Fall River Road is currently closed to cars. The road is in terrific shape, no ruts or washouts. You can ride to the Chapman Pass Trailhead but from there the road is impassable, covered in snow.

Pretty and Easy trail.

Beautiful Hike. I saw a dusty grouse along the trail which I have never seen a bird like that!

Loved the trail. We saw abundance of marmots in which they prefer not to social distance themselves. And we saw a long-tailed weasel. Spikes would be helpful. However the trail is doable without them.

Incredible hike. Snow around Dream Lake. Moderate amount of hikers out on a Tuesday afternoon. Parking lot at Bear Lake almost full.

Only giving it 4 of 5 because there are QUITE a few “creeks” in the trail due to snow melt right now. I’d definitely recommend trekking poles and waterproof boots so you can climb over the rocks or go through the water dryly. It’s steep in parts, and it gets up there. By mid morning it’s warm, so go early!

Trail had some muddy spots from the lake surge from snow melt; but a very easy walk at elevation. Gorgeous reflections on a clear day! Third trip today- elk all three times, today a momma and calf moose playing in the water! Go early!

Nice easy walking trail. Perfect for watching sunrise or after dinner in the summer time to avoid the heat. Good early morning spot for catching a moose!

Easy Hike, Bunch of Campgrounds and Aspen Forrest’s

I hiked this today, it is open and really nice hike. The falls are awesome. It’s a very worthwhile hike. I was surprised at the amount of people on the trail

One of the top trails I’ve ever done in CO— and I’ve lived here for 8 years and am an avid outdoorsman. There is some snow on the trail — would recommend either poles or spikes, especially if you go later when the snow gets slushy. Some post holing later in the day, but not bad — definitely doable (even without spikes). BREATHTAKING & BEAUTIFUL. A MUST DO! We logged 11.7 miles, but started at the Bear Lake TH

Great hike - strongly recommended. Arrived at 6:30 and parking was fine. Not too many people considering how wonderful the day was. Lots of shade on the trail so a good one for hot days. Beautiful waterfall and great lake. Bit of snow on path but did it fine in my average Nike's :)

Beautiful trail!

Bring spikes!!!!!

Trail is in great shape. Climb can be tiring but steps make it easier. Would highly recommend the hike and recommend climbing up the wall at the lake to a higher vantage point.

Hiked 5/30/20. It was such a beautiful hike. You pass two other lakes until you get up to Emerald, which is VERY iced over at the moment. Dream Lake and the other smaller one at the beginning are all water and it is amazing and breathtaking for pictures and views the whole way up. Friendly marmots and chipmunks greeted us at the top and WILL try to break into your snacks. We brought our spikes but my boyfriend did not find them necessary, while I found them very helpful.

The trail was amazing! I just moved here and this was my first real mountain hike! It’s definitely hard for someone like me who isn’t use to the altitude and who’s a little out of shape but it was a gorgeous trail. There is some packed snow in some parts passed the 1st lake and going up to emerald got sketchy but going down was fun!! People basically made a slide in the snow so I sent it and basically toboggan the whole way down. Super fun!

Wonderful day and great trail. The review citing the 13 switchbacks was very helpful. The trail was dry and there were not many people at 7:30 a.m.. We were rewarded with beautiful views of the mountains and deep blue sky. Glad I made it to the summit after being iced out in the winter attempts.Most everyone we met wore masks and /or stepped aside.

6/2/2020 THERE WAS A MALE ELK NEXT TO THE PATH. No one could pass it, it was grazing and occasionally looking around at us. Honestly terrifying but amazing, he was so close.
